Keeping my fridge and pantry filled with good ingredients means that I can whip up a tasty meal or snack whenever it's needed. I try to go for healthy foods as often as possible. The kids need those goods foods to fuel their growing bodies and Jim and I aren't exactly spring chickens any more so we have to be a little more conscious of what we eat.
That's why I love using products like Smart Balance® Buttery Spread. I get great taste whether I am cooking with it, baking with it or just spreading it! Plus, I can feel good about using it as it has no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. It's also dairy free so I can use it like butter and love it even more!
Who needs butter when there's Smart Balance?!
Smart Balance® Original not only tastes great, it's perfect for all your favorite foods. You don't have to sacrifice taste for a better-for-you spread!

There's also Smart Balance® Light with Flaxseed Oil. It has all the same benefits as Smart Balance® Original and 50% less fat and calories than butter or stick margarine2.

Stop by the Publix Aprons station as Smart Balance® Light with Flaxseed Oil will be featured in the recipes being served up 1/19 – 1/22. Be sure to grab a taste and then pick up a few ingredients and a menu card so you can recreate the dish for your family. I already grabbed a recipe card...it's Coconut Curry Fish with Zucchini and it sounds amazing...quick, easy and delicious!
